Don't Burn My Buns!

While sitting idle in the hot sun the seat of a personal water craft can become hot enough to burn!

While vacationing at the lake this weekend we really enjoyed riding around on our Yamaha Waverunner's. Problem was, after sitting idle for a couple of hours in 100+ temperatures the seats become excruciatingly HOT! So, you stand there and scoop handfuls of water over the seat to try to cool it down. The manufactures of personal watercraft should install small hand (or electric) pumps to siphon water from the lake and onto the seat to cool it down.

Agreed, seats can get too hot! Maybe manufacturers could use a fabric that doesn't absorb as much heat, or transfer heat so quickly to skin.
